Ride Cincinnati, the city’s premier grassroots fundraiser, has revealed its 2021 fundraising total – an event record-topping $1+ million – raised for local cancer research. This brings the total to more than $5.5 million raised for local cancer research in the event’s 15-year history.
On the heels of this success, organizers have opened registration for the 2022 event, happening September 16-17, 2022. This year’s Ride will depart from Yeatman’s Cove and features five route options, including a re-established 8 mile route (8, 15, 25, 50 and 100 miles), as well as Ride’s popular kickoff celebration and after-party. As always, every rider-raised dollar goes directly to life-saving cancer research and care in Greater Cincinnati.
Ride Cincinnati’s fundraising efforts have positioned the event as a critical component in the Barrett Cancer Center’s drive to earn a coveted National Cancer Institute designation, having funded more than 57 research grants directly impacting local cancer outcomes.
“One in three women and one in two men will face cancer in their lifetimes. Unfortunately, that means that we’re all very likely to be touched by this disease,” Western & Southern Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer John F. Barrett said. “We owe it to our friends, neighbors and relatives to make Cincinnati the best place for cancer research, education and care. Thanks to events like Ride Cincinnati, we are well on our way to making that vision a reality.”
With safety a top priority, organizers will continue to adhere to all state and local guidance to make Ride Cincinnati 22 the safest and most enjoyable experience possible. Additional updates will be made available on the event website and social media pages.
